Ruthless Tide - The Heroes and Villains of the Johnstown Flood, America’s Astonishing Gilded Age Disaster


Al Roker returns with a flood account that is both intimate and alert to the wealth and class distinctions highlighted by the 1889 Johnstown Flood. In this fresh account of the Pennsylvania dam break that destroyed Johnstown and killed more than 2,000 people, Roker is especially adept at focusing on key individuals—residents, politicians, movers and shakers, rescue workers—and letting their stories represent the myriads of others.  The author is also very alert to the class issues that underlay it all. The earthen dam formed a lake for some very wealthy citizens (among them, Andrew Carnegie), who, of course, denied responsibility afterward.  An exciting, tragic story seasoned with sensitive social analysis and criticism.
